Yellowstone Morning Fogs

Yellowstone Morning Fogs

On a cold Yellowstone dawn, two fog sources blended to form an enchantingly eerie and ethereal scene: ground fog from the previous day’s heavy rains and condensed steam risen out of geothermal vents.  For about an hour, an area of several square miles around the park’s western geyser basins resembled a giant version of the stages and fun houses that use dry ice to create chaotically dancing and swirling floor vapors—except these were completely natural on a stage of a volcanic caldera.
